If you've ever watched an episode of The Bachelor, then you've probably gotten curious about each of the women competing for the Bachelor's heart. Fortunately if you want to get to know the ladies of the new season a little better, you can find Nick Viall's Bachelor contestants on Instagram. Looking through their profiles will give you the chance to get to know more about the women and what they're doing when they're not pursuing love on reality TV.
What you'll find there might not surprise you, as, after all, what you present on Instagram can be just as carefully curated as the narratives on The Bachelor. For example, look at how Nick uses his Instagram — he's gone from posting morose single guy posts about looking for "the one" to posting confident pictures where he's smiling and looking great. The story told by Nick's Insta is of a guy who's finally ready to be the one who gets the happy ending, no longer resigned to second place. Here's what you'll learn about the women who are competing for his heart, if you check out their Instas, too.
What you'll find: Goofy antics appropriate for a woman who dressed in a shark costume to meet Nick, lots of jokey captions and memes, and proud auntie pics of her two young nieces.
What you'll find: Modeling portfolio shots that show off that she's impressively tall, her big eyed Chihuahua, and Southern charm.
What you'll find: Tireless support for the charity she works for, LA sunsets & In&Out Burger, and a squad that rivals Taylor Swift's.
What you'll find: Outdoorsy activities that will get your heart rate up, cheerleading, and the American flag.
What you'll find: A surplus of friends, travel to some of the country's most iconic locations, and trips to the beach.
What you'll find: Her account is private, but she has thousands of followers so perhaps she'll approve you. If she does, you'll see her new home in Nashville and see her adjust to life on social media.
What you'll find: lots of semi-professional modeling photos, beach visits, and Snapchat videos.

What you'll find: A nice balance between indulging the fantasy of NFL and NBA cheerleading and reaching out to inspire and empower young girls.
What you'll find: Beachwear, modeling shoots, and behind-the-scenes looks at nursing school.
What you'll find: A pretty average Instagram account with a slightly Southern twist.
What you'll find: Cozy mountain cabins, cute kittens, and a love of the finer things in life like brightly colored flowers and rich desserts.
What you'll find: She has no Instagram, Twitter only. The above photo is from her lemonade business.
What you'll find: Devoted friendship (she's been a bridesmaid several times, according to her account), serene porches from Nashville to Alaska, and great cocktails.
What you'll find: She keeps her Instagram private, but has quite a few approved followers. She's a boutique owner from Arkansas.
What you'll find: A love of kids, big smiles, and a move from NYC to southern California in the last couple of years.
What you'll find: She sums it up pretty well in her bio: "Everybody needs a little bit of crazy and adventure."
What you'll find: A very chubby family cat, her impressive set of counseling degrees, and hiking selfies with the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the background.
What you'll find: She only has a Twitter, and those Tweets are protected, plus an old Instagram account that may have been associated with her is now defunct. Looks like she is not interested in sharing too much of her life online.
What you'll find: She has the whole "perfect version of your life" thing down pat. Maybe that means she'll be a pro at playing to the TV cameras as well as her iPhone camera.
I can't wait to watch these ladies on The Bachelor so soon.
